Subject description


  • Enrolment in the third year of study.

Content (Syllabus outline):

Introduction, life cycle of control systems, continuous and discrete control. Continuous control. Complex approaches to design of PID controllers: optimization, self-tuning and adaptation. Practical problems – filtering, bump-less transfer manual/automatic, anti-wind up. Multi-loop control methods: feed-forward, cascade control systems. Analysis and design in frequency domain: Bode diagram, root locus diagram. Stability of control systems. Nyquist stability criteria. Lead and lag compensators. Practical work with MATLAB environment and Control System Toolbox and Optimization Toolbox in analysis and design of control systems. Discrete control. Design, ladder diagram, functional diagram. Standard program languages of programmable logic controllers. Realization.
